Christmas morning. Very unexpected. Simple and sweet.
I sure hope the Duggar’s have been saving for marrying off all those kids. The first Duggar daughter is on her way to a new last name. News broke last week that the 19 Kids and Counting (image 3) couple’s second eldest daughter Jill Duggar is engaged to her boyfriend of about two years, Derick Dillard. The young betrothed duo actually met via Jim Bob Duggar, Jill’s father. He felt strongly after meeting Derick that he and Jill (image 2) would hit it off, so he introduced them and it turns out he was right!
Jill has been studying to become a midwife and penned a tell-all about the Duggar’s stance on relationships. 25-Year-old Derick is an accountant in Arkansas. He and Jill communicated for quite a while before meeting in person in Nepal back in 2012. The conservative reality TV cast member has yet to kiss her hubby-to-be too! While that may seem extreme to many, the Duggar family is widely known for their very traditional and strict methods of childrearing. In fact, the young couple wasn’t even permitted to hold hands until they were formally engaged! All visitations—even Skype interaction—between the two lovebirds has always been supervised by at least two adult chaperones.
Getting down to business, let’s discuss the round-cut solitaire sparkler on the 22-year-old Duggar daughter’s hand! (image 1) Jill was surprised with musicians playing a song written just for the couple when Dillard dropped to his knee and asked for her hand in marriage and she shrieked “Yes! Totally!” Now the only remaining question is who the heck he will pick as her MOH? We expect a large wedding party!
While this couple (image 1) got engaged way back in 2010, have since married, and had a beautiful baby girl… this ring can’t go unnoticed. With Kristen Bell starring recently in both Frozen and Veronica Mars the movie, we thought her engagement ring from hubby Dax Shepard was perfect for today’s #TBT.
What we love most about this couple—aside from their killer sense of humor in movies like When in Rome— is that they held true to their promise of staving off marriage until it was legal for same-sex couples to marry in their home state of California. After nearly 4 years—three months shy to be exact—of being engaged—the couple married in a simple ceremony at the Beverly Hills county clerk office. The October 17th wedding followed the legalization of same-sex marriages in Cali in June of 2013. What started as an application for a marriage license that day segued straight into saying “I do”—it still isn’t entirely clear if the couple planned it that way or not.
The couple had welcomed their first child together, daughter Lincoln, in March of 2013, making that year a big one for the Bell-Shepard family. The ring (images 2 & 3), an emerald-cut and bezel-set, 3 carat champagne sparkler from Neil Lane, holds its own in Hollywood, standing out from the crowd of humongous halos and stupendous solitaires. We think marriage and motherhood (images 4 & 5) suit this actress very well. What do you think?
